Shirley update

Shirley Karl, my mother-in-law, passed away Sunday morning.

(January 11, 1935 – October 5, 2014)

For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him. Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.

1 Thessalonians 5:9-11

Compost Saves the World

Signed, sealed and almost delivered.


We (Mary, my sister, my mom and I) listed my mom’s house for sale. The first day, Day 1, we had about a dozen people come through to ‘view’ the house [the result of internet/multi-realtor listing]. Day 2, we had three offers. ‘We’ accepted one. The closing was this past Monday and my mom is no longer a home-owner. We have twenty-days to vacate and move 45-years of ‘living’.

My brothers, Mary and I have been busy to say the least. Mary already ‘packed’ my mom and went Up North to her home near Traverse City this past Tuesday. We are almost done ‘packing’.

The kitchen is the last of the BIG move effort. Today, I used the only chair in the house, a swivel bar stool, to reach above the refrigerator to empty the cabinet. It swiveled, I fell over it, between my legs and backwards! I DON”T know how I am here to tell you about it! I had a guardian angel, perhaps my sister Betty, watching over me! It was not my time!

I am sore (duh?) and my inner thigh is already bruised… and I have to work tomorrow at The Wolcott Farm. BTW, I found a stepladder in the basement! Good thing bumbles bounce????

My MIL is at home – no change – no better, no worse, since we brought her home. We’ve arranged hospice care w/relatives, so all is good.

Enjoy your weekend!

P.S. It’s been wonderful weather-wise here… but, I’ve been packing!!
